  • Another wonderful lesson. Thank you

  • Sir is speaking so fast…plz we are learners..so plz try to speak slow thanks

  • No matter how busy your life gets, make sure you prioritize yourself and your health and practice self-care. Sleep naturals, green essentials and brahmi capsules from planet ayurveda are some of the herbal supplements for self-care and better health.

  • Thanks for this video. The teachers are so interesting and they inspire me with their positive attitude.
    I love the saying that work-life balance is very important and we only live one life.
    I worked in Standard Chartered Bank in Hong Kong for my first job. My team worked 11-14 hours every day.
    My senior sometimes said intimidating words to me when I left earlier.
    I know that overtime working is still prevailing in that bank. We are all too weak to say out, at least I can say here.

  • Thanks for your efforts .It is very helpful and enjoyable

  • Thank you very much. I have learnt a lot. All of teachers are amazing.
    I'll try to learn English every day. I hope that I can speak fluently and get TOEIC 750 after next 6 months.

  • These two teachers deserve a big thumbs up , and that tutor (gentlemen) really makes sense. He is acting and transmiting the ideas very deeply , honestly. That's impressive.


  • I work out on a daily basis though I just do some gentl running for about 10 mins.I think it is not important how long you exercise each time,what matters is that you do it consitently everyday.It will do wonders for your health and your mind as well.
    I am in very good shape.Actually I am never out of shape or in a bad shape.i am not sure being in good shape means that i am fit or not.I have a very well rounded diet.I try my best to make sure that there are four groups of food in my daily meal.my diet emphasizes on fruits and veggies,includes lean meat and nuts.I think it is important to control what we put on our body.

  • Can you please tell me what "plan something in advance " means ?

  • I already have learned many things from your videos.
    Thank you OOE team.

  • Thanks for your informative lesson. I'm trying to cut down coffee. Coffee is my vice, too, without drinking coffee, I can't awake to work. But I could not give it up completely. And I'm trying to quit drinking wine too, It's not good for girls since one day we might need to become mothers. 😀

  • Health is very important in our life. I eat a lot of healthy food, I make sure that myself stay off junk food, fried food and sugar drink. I usually get up early at 4:30, and then I'll take a shower. After that, I'll read books and do some yoga. I think those are good start for my whole day. I don't want to be a sedentary person, so I'm trying to keep my work-life balance.
